My husband chose the cruise. The ship was lovely and our room was very nice and well maintained. The Wi-Fi connection was very weak. The food was excellent. It was nice to have a choice of where to eat. We had dinners up on the atrium deck and could get smaller portions. The 2 evening performances were a nice addition and very enjoyable. All the tour guides were well informed and the ear phones made the tours much much better.
The only disappointing experience was at the beginning in Amsterdam. We couldn,t find our Viking greeter and if we hadn't met another Viking passenger we would still be wandering the airport. Then when we found our meeting point no one would listen to the fact that we were doing a extended stay. When we got to the hotel there was no viking person to greet us we were just told at the desk that the Viking office was around the corner. We ended up doing Amsterdam on our own with a guidebook . When we finally met the Viking person in Amsterdam the word useless comes to mind. We have now done 5 Viking trips and all were very well organized until Amsterdam. After we got to our ship things were excellent!!
